I bet you could recast the whole Greeks vs Romans civilization clash as something very nearly resembling today’s Windows vs Mac relationship. There seems to be the Trojan horse (when Gates invested in Apple) and now, with OSX essentially cannibalizing Windows applications, we’re seeing the story come full circle (I certainly don’t see the visually superior Mac apps running on the PC anytime soon). Fascinating to see history repeating itself yet again.
